Event teams can now curate all meetings using automated controls and maintain complete visibility of overall meeting expenses, across all categories in real time.

e-destinACCESS, of Tucson AZ has partnered with BirchStreet Systems, the hospitality industry Procure-to-Pay leader, based in Newport Beach, CA to streamline and integrate the multi-level meeting approval and purchase order processes for total event management. Delivering a touchless, smarter and simpler approach to controlling costs and increasing profits.

Wayne Beaubien, CEO of e-destinACCESS, Inc. shares; “We achieved a very significant milestone with our respective integration. The solution is 180 degree shift in the way events are managed. No more tracking status by emails. This eliminates the dozens of spreadsheets managing spend. e-destinACCESS provides a single entry platform for creating events and purchase order approval for the hotel’s sales and catering and meeting/event departments. Everything is booked and scheduled through the Destin platform. Then the approval process for the released PO is provided by BirchStreet Systems. A simple click of a button provides one source for standardization and cost compliance”.

Michael Saam, Director of Fairmont Scottsdale Princess’s Adventures & Experiences shares “The destin platform has given our Destination Management Department a streamlined process that has opened new and creative revenue streams over the past 8 years. The opportunity to have an integrated PO approval process through BirchStreet is a welcomed opportunity and the next stop of Destin’s evolution.”

Steve Markle, BirchStreet’s CEO, shares his thoughts on the strategic value of partnering with a unique solution provider in the hospitality space. “The e-destinACCESS team is a talented group with many years of experience in the hospitality and event management for full-service hotels or large venues. They recognized a major problem with expense leakage from lack of controls in this area. By creating the Destin tool and integrating with the BirchStreet P2P platform, our combined offering delivers unparalleled visibility, to make better and more accurate buying decisions. These decisions generate immediate measurable savings and help to maximize profits in this highly visible area in the hospitality industry.
